Hearn Confirms Khan-Lo Greco A Sell Out
At Thursday’s press conference Eddie Khan confirmed that Amir Khan’s first fight in the U.K in five years is a sell out.
Khan, who is set for a 150 pound catchweight fight against Phil Lo Geco will go down at the now sold out ECHO arena in Manchester.
“It’s been a while since we’ve sold a show in Liverpool as well as this one and I think it shows how big a star Amir still is in British boxing that he has sold 9,000 tickets for his comeback fight,” Hearn told Boxing Scene following Thursday’s presser.
“I got that beautiful phone call from the ECHO Arena late on Wednesday night to tell us we’re completely sold out. We’ll have a full house in to witness the return of Amir Khan… Amir Khan is still a huge star and that has shown, but there are opportunities on this card for some of the young local fighters to become stars and push on towards title level.”
